IMo it's only bad if you drink too much of it, which people tend to do with diet soda, thinking it's all good, but it has a ton of sodium in it! A couple of cans a day I think is totally fine though

I have been into this whole foods thing, organic, avoiding chemicals, I even dropped coffee. It hasn't gotten me anything! So frustrating.

I was off site from work today, boring work, and they had free Tully's coffee, I had to have some! You know what? My appetite was lower!!! I think the coffee helps me.

Am I writing in the wrong thread? Amber said something about coffee somewhere but I couldnt' respond at the time.

I am so back on coffee!

I can't wait to go to the Dr on Thursday. I woke up at 1am with another horrible headache. I have been up. Ever since. Naturally, I didn't weigh this morning. I have a pretty busy day today so I hope to get some relief soon.

I am wondering if the soda is contributing to the headaches? I had a 44oz diet dr pepper yesterday. It was disgusting but I drank it anyways.

I've definitely read that too much aspartame can cause headaches, or you can be sensitive to aspartame and that will cause all sorts of stuff. Maybe try changing your diet soda to ones that are sweetened with sucralose (splenda) and see if it helps?
I know that Diet Rite and Pepsi One are sweetened with sucralose and Diet Coke also has a variety that is sweetened with Splenda instead of aspartame, but I'm not sure you're a cola girl!
Umm, well I googled and found that Jones diet sodas, Hansen diet sodas and all Shasta diet sodas are sucralose sweetened too! They have to sell at least one of those brands near you

Sara we can't get any of those brands near me......LOL. Don't forget I am in the country. I am just thinking I will try to wean myself off of diet soda completely except on occasions. I do much better drinking my water when there is no diet soda around.

I was a heavy pepsi drinker before low carb so I try to stay clear of dark sodas for the most part. I don't know what the heck I was thinking when I tried to drink that dt. Dr Pepper Yesterday.

Reva, are you ok with all of these tornadoes going on around you? I hope everything has passed by now! This is just so terrible. I have been in tears all morning reading about it on cnn.

Casey thank you for thinking of me. We are ok right now. We are under a tornado watch right now again. It is so scary what is going on all around us. We are suppose to get a few more days of storms I am afraid. The tornados have taken so many lives and homes that I don't know anything can ever be rebuilt.

Sara I have been lazy on the zumba as well. I do plan on getting back to it though. I know I will be doing it on the days this summer that it is just too hot to go outside.

Jeriah and I slept in until 9am this morning. First time ever that the other kids have not bothered me before school. It was much needed and I actually feel rested for a change.

Hey, Reva! I haven't posted in a while but decided to come and check on you to be sure you were doing ok today. I spent an hour in the school cafeteria with all the students, staff and teachers as we had several small quick tornado touchdowns here. Heard the cell that left us hit Sedalia, Mo and have seen the damage on tv since I got home. So hope you guys will be safe! I am way behind on reading your blog. Hope to have more time soon. Take care! You are looking great in your new photo!

Thank you so much!! I am so frustrated by the scale but I am seeing a difference in the way my clothes fit and in photos.

The storms here were terrible Yesterday. Several funnel clouds were sighted but none touched down in my town thankfully. Two hit the same town twice night. I feel so terrible for those people. We was stuck in an unfinished basement for hours with five kids. NO FUN AT ALL. It was so scary. It went from almost 90 degrees down to the 50's in a very short time. The weather is so screwy. As bad as I hate 100degree temps I would rather see those any day.

Tonight is step sons graduation. Thankfully he made it. Now, if we can just get him sent out with the military. Saturday we are having a BBQ with several of his friends over. Do I think he deserves it after what he has put us thru NO but I would feel horrible if we didn't do anything at all for him.

The scale was at 264 this morning. This sucks royally. Tomorrow is the kid's last day so I am excited because now I can hit the gym for a few hours a day and not feel rushed for time. WOO HOO!!!!

So glad you are safe Reva!!

Just wanted to add that you are a really good mom and those kids are lucky to have you. One day he will realize all you have done for him. They never realize it as teenagers. It is usually once they are married with kids. Love ya!

I am excited for you Amber that the scale moved to a lower number. I sure wish I could say the same for myself. I am doing it to myself but must realize I am well over a 100 pounds lighter than I was this time last years so I can **tch right?

I am actually kind of excited about the BBQ tomorrow. I am not looking forward to cooking but hey it is a reason to celebrate huh?

Sara I was thinking the same thing myself.....LOL!!!! It has been a long rough journey but all in all it was worth it. STRUGGLE OR NOT!!! I will be doing the celebrating when he leaves for boot camp thats for sure.

Casey thank you!! That means so much to see you say that. I needed to hear that.

nikki hope you have an awesome weekend!! How are you doing?

Edens how are you doing? I have been missing your posts!!! Hope all is well with you. You need a journal...LOL.

Martini I am trying to hang!!!!!!!!!!

The scale is at the same weight so I suppose I should be happy its not showing a gain. TOM has finally arrived and I am bloated something terrible. I haven't been drinking near as much water as I should be either. Its so time to get my routine back in order. The kiddos are out of school now so I can start going in the mornings and spending a much longer amount of time there. I will be guzzling the water I am sure since it will be getting much hotter outside. I HATE HEAT!!




Here is a picture of Lil Quane graduating last night. I didn't get all of the kids in there I had planned.

I totally hate how my arms look. I want to get the fat chopped off terribly.

Reva- you look great, the arms will get hacked, I would have waited if it were not for the wedding, but you know I love them, and the more exercise you do before the better, you should see my guns, one week back at it and I am pumped you can really see the muscles now with all that stuff gone!!!! I am right back to lifting what I was, so next week, more!!!
THe family is beautiful, he is a cutie no wonder he gets in trouble with the girls and you look great!!!!!Look how little your face is, we were talking about this on another thread how we get so depressed with ourselves yet only see the beauty in others, we need to find our inner beauty and celebrate the years we are adding to our lives!!!!!The surgeons will fix the cosmetics someday!!!!
